Should boxing be banned: My View
Boxing is one of the world?s popular sports entertaining people of all ages. In its most recent years, it has come under many criticisms. This is because of the various effects boxing can cause. It can cause: brain damage, Parkinson?s, Alzheimer?s and other syndromes.Here are a few statistics; 15 ? 20% of boxers ending a professional career develop the ?punch-drunk syndrome?. This syndrome consists of intellectual deterioration, loss of memory, slurred speech and difficulty in walking. Boxing can also effect the time of death as for a professional boxer death occurs somewhat 10 to 15 years earlier than average. This is more than enough to give boxing a bad name. When the head is knocked sideways, the brain swirls in the skull, its layers shearing and sliding off one another, tearing vital nerve fibres. This is how the effects of boxing can be caused and this is what the people that are against boxing distinguish as a brutal damage to human beings. Yet, it is up to the boxers themselves to choose whether or not to go into the fight.
Despite all the consequences of this sport, it is still hugely popular which makes it almost impossible to ban. Currently, there are more than 3,000 registered boxers under the age of 16 among the 600 clubs affiliated to the aba (Amateur Boxing Association). This explains the reason why it is crucial to keep the sport alive. ?The best thing for the boxing authorities to do is to make boxing as safe as possible? is the claim of a person wanting boxing to be banned but realises the effects banning boxing can cause. After viewing facts and thinking over the whole issue myself, I feel that those against boxing are right. In my opinion too, it seems that this sport that many people enjoy is actually hugely dangerous. Though I have realised that as the sport is so admired and widely-spread, to ban it will cause havoc, it may be driven underground or it may cause many riots. Sure, people could make it a safer sport but really the safer it gets the less interesting its supporters would find it. Would people actually listen to those trying to ban it? Despite all of these consequences what makes me against boxing is that it is a celebration of the fact that if someone hits you, you hit him or her back harder. This just does not make it dangerous it makes boxing a crime ? it is a symbol of the worst qualities to mankind it is barbaric and in my eyes, it is legalised murder. People say that boxing is not the one of the most dangerous sports in the world, but the aim of boxing itself is to inflict as much damage on the opponent, the principle of the game is to throw blows to the head of your opponent, that is what makes it so dangerous.Neurology, called for a ban on professional boxing. It is not going to happen. However, the good news is that boxing is becoming somewhat safer ? referees generally intervene earlier to stop fights. The bad news is that many boxers are not that happy about it ? especially when they lose the bout. Some die-hard fighters would still rather die-hard. This is a problem that has caused officials trying to make the sport safer, as the boxers are beginning to complain that it is loosing its excitement, that?s because by making it safer it makes it loose its point, to inflict pain and cause permanent damage on the victim. Others believe that boxing has been around for a very long time, and this is a reason not to ban it; just because it is old does not justify the brutality involved, the gladiator games where first started in the roman times yet they got banned-because of the brutality involved! I understand that boxing is a lot less brutal than the gladiator games but both have the same concept; they are both barbaric. Despite all its barbarity, the sport manages to support many employees. Not only does it support the boxers and their trainers, it also supports the gambling side of things. People make a living on betting on which boxer will win the fight; also the gambling shops make a living out of the betting aswell.
